OHA: Office of Hawaiian Affairs

Watch the mini-documentary produced by OHA about the community, the floods and the relief efforts. OHA continues to assist Native Hawaiians in the affected areas.

Kōkua for Kauaʻi

Hawaiians represent 30 percent of the population in remote Wainiha and Hāʻena, which were badly affected by torrential downpours and have been nearly isolated by highway damage, rockfall and mudslides. A delegation representing OHA’s administration and Trustee Dan Ahuna’s office met with flood-impacted residents, nonprofit leaders and county officials to listen to their concerns and assess the extensive damage in communities along Kauaʻi’s northern coast.

OHA is committed to supporting beneficiaries recovering from flood damage on Kauaʻi, as well as those coping with an ongoing eruption at Kīlauea volcano on Hawaiʻi Island.

Starting on Friday, June 15, Native Hawaiians affected by the floods may submit completed financial assistance forms. Call ahead to make an appointment or drop by:

Office of Hawaiian Affairs – Kauaʻi Office
4405 Kukui Grove St suite 103
Līhue, HI 96766
808-241-3390

Update: OHA’s Kauaʻi office will begin processing applications for emergency relief on Friday, June 15, not June 12.
